HIS 2013 installer "set automatic log on" not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

       This was my first attempt at using this feature however when the server rebooted during the install, it did not automatically log back on (with my own credentials).  Is there something else that needs to be in place for this to work?

    Thanks, Jim.

  • Hello,

    This can be a bug in the HIS 2013 Installer. I recommend you to do the restart (autologin) manually like this :

    You will need to have an account with a password for this to work.

    1. Run regedit.exe

    2. Navigate to

      HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\winlogon
    3. Set or create the following keys

      AutoAdminLogon = "1"
      DefaultUserName = Your user name
      DefaultPassword = Your password
    4. Restart and let us know if it works!

    Hope this helps you :-)

    Best Regards,
